As our health-care workers continue to battle on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, community partners are stepping up to help give them a little love.
The Fayetteville Woodpeckers Minor League Baseball team announced it was buying meal vouchers for the entire staff of the Highsmith Rainey Specialty Hospital, about 500 meals.
The Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros said the gift to honor “the true MVPs in the fight against coronavirus” was made possible through its Community Leaders Program and its corporate partners, Segra, Aevex Aerospace, ASUS, Walsingham Group, Carolinas Dentist, and Blanton’s Air, Plumbing & Electric.
The vouchers all contained a special message from the team: “In appreciation for your continued commitment to serving others, the Fayetteville Woodpeckers Baseball Club would like to take care of your meal today. From our nest to yours, thank you for your hard work keeping our community safe and healthy.”
